Gordon Hayward’s decision to part ways with the Jazz is a severe blow to the squad. Here’s the Deseret Morning News reporting how a remaining member of Utah’s team is dealing with the disappointment:

Joe Ingles not happy that Gordon Hayward left Jazz

Leave it to Joe Ingles to bring some levity to an emotionally charged situation.

Ingles was Gordon Hayward’s best friend on the Utah Jazz, so he wasn’t thrilled when the All-Star decided to sign with the Boston Celtics instead of staying with the 51-win team.

But Ingles, who’s agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract with Utah, is trying to take Hayward’s impending move in stride.

“He’s always going to be a good friend of mine,” Ingles said in an interview with NBA Australia this week. “But I still don’t like him for the time being because he left us, but we’ll be fine.”
